hmm... Camero... Transformer... anyone? I think it's not Jon's rendering, it maybe the slim headlight effect from the new concept. It doesn't feel BMW character from the new kidney grill style.

BMW eco-concept for Frankfurt

The car is one of many studies made to explore different design directions and aerodynamics.

BMW is planning to reveal an environmental sports car concept at the Frankfurt show.

The EfficientDynamics Vision is designed to show how efficient a performance car can be and will feature eco innovations in the drivetrain and materials.

This suggests it could use aluminium or even fabric, as seen in the previous Gina concept car.

It is likely to feature intelligent aerodynamic systems that could one day find their way on to BMW road cars.

Expect the concept to be powered by either a hybrid powerplant, which could be a diesel, or an all-electric motor.
THANKS for the info Autocar!
Lots of people here have no clue what this concept is all about.

This is the real thing:

I was too excited when I found this pic yesterday and wanted to post it ASAP. On a second look, I also think that it looks fake, e.g. there's no Hofmeister-Knick in the rear door window, etc.

It could be the new 5 Series. If it's the new 5 then the front bumper will pass for day-to-day aerodynamic demands getting to the office. I imagine the openings on the bumper will look similar to the X5 M and the X6 M if this chassis gets the M5 treatment.

This makes a bit more sense. Also explains the fake brakes, the wheels, and the fact they have plastic taped over it to hide it, rather than a proper cover. Perhaps this was the study for an X4...
